We had opted for a classic sea view room with balcony( room 301 )and were not disappointed. The balcony was huge at least 6 x 6 metres partially covered to protect you from the sun which was very hot at times.The sea views were superb, across the bay to the Italian coast, you could watch the cruise ships sail in...

Having a very relaxing week here. The building itself is very nice. Clean and rather grand. Its very typical of other 4 star Italian hotels I've stayed in. Lots of marble and 20s/30s styling. All staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool is delightful. Dont let the steps put you off. You can take it slowly and its really...

This is a perfectly adequate hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the front of house staff courteous and helpful. Breakfast is plentiful.The hotel is conveniently located, just across from the bus depot. Unfortunately, the service I received in the dining room was poor, perhaps because I was a lone traveller. In brief, my meal took ages to arrive...

This hotel has spectacular views, & great location into Taormina, that's the only good thing about it. Staff on reception are miserable, especially the woman, she is so rude! They moaned when we asked for ice, they told us we have to use their facilities if we want a drink, BUT, the facilities were NEVER open! Two sachets of coffee...

The hotel looks spectacular from the outside being situated on the cliff. It has got nice views. The rooms are a bit out of date but clean. The staff are generally ok. The pool attendant was very charming. However, the reception lady was very unfriendly and quite rude, which spoilt the whole experience.

Beautiful sea views. Ideally situated for a quiet holiday. Not for those with poor mobility however. Lots of steps within the hotel if on the lower floors and from the pool. The hotel is built on a cliff so expect some climbing. One of the best hotels seen in the resort.

Lovely hotel with built in exercise if you consider the pool...with 176 steps it's a commitment to go but well worth it for the pool, service at the pool bar and the VIEWS! Staff were excellent, breakfast a little boring but all one needs really! Rooms are lovely but we're blessed by having the best in the house

This is a very nice hotel, situated about 5-10 mins walk from the fabulous ancient theatre and the old town with its numerous restaurants and just across the road from the bus station. Lovely service was received from all the staff. The pool is very nice and the pool man very attentive. The downside is that you have to walk...

Location, views and pool area of this hotel were very good, however the hotel common areas and rooms definitely need an update. The rooms and hallways were dark and dated, and needed to be better maintained. Our superior room, although had a nice water view balcony, was tiny with the smallest shower possible. You could barely bend over in it....
